I about passed out!

Saturday I went to my favorite fabric shop -


I walked around touching ALL of the fabric. It's an obsession....really!

Then, while I was chatting with the ladies that were working

These beauties walked in....

It's my pattern!! It's Penelope Ruffles....twice!

I, of course, made a total fool of myself by yelling "That's MY bag! I made that pattern! See...I have one too!!"

The ladies looked at me

giggled nervously

and went back to shopping.

It was fun!

SO COOL! I am giddy for you, too! I actually just bought that pattern {along with many of your other patterns} last week when I went up to the warehouse. I am planning on making that bag for myself. Just got to find the right fabrics... hmmm. Need to get on that. CONGRATS... I know that had to have been exciting!

I was going to tell you that every time I go in there with mine, someone asks me if it's a hard pattern (NO! It's so easy!) and they all tell me how cute it is.

Wasn't it a surreal experience? It doesn't happen to me often, but it's always very fun! Great picture, btw, made better by your cool blur! Such a cute bag, too.

Darling, you must stop frightening the townspeople.

But dang, is that cool or what? It must be like if you are a singer and you hear your song on the radio for the first time--TWICE IN A ROW!!!!!

I would have made you autograph my bag.
